We are committed to transform the textile industry, and work with a number of certifications at fiber, yarn and fabric level.
Here you can find some of our certifications, but there are many more.
The EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life-cycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal. Its criteria provide exigent guidelines for companies looking to lower their environmental impact and guarantee the efficiency of their environmental actions through third party controls.
Our carbon neutral seaweed fiber has been awarded with the EU ecolabel, ensuring high excellence environmental standards complying with the EU criteria for ecological agriculture.

Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex® guarantees that every part of the item is tested to make sure products are safe for consumer use. It notably reviews various regulated and non-regulated substances and often goes beyond national and international requirements to ensure all processing chemicals are non-toxic.
All of our fibers are Standard 100 certified on a class I level, meaning they comply with the strictest requirements and limit values, which makes the product suitable for babies.

Bluesign® certifies a production that does not use any toxic or carcinogenic substance. It forces brands to be limited in energy and water and requires them to develop a sustainability plan to limit the amount of water and energy needed for production and to ensure responsible waste treatment. It also imposes constraints on air quality and CO2 emissions.

Managed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), the BioPreferred program aims to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. The USDA certified biobased product label assures a consumer that the product contains a verified amount of renewable biological ingredients (referred to as biobased content). Consumers can trust the label to mean what it says because manufacturer's claims concerning the biobased content are third-party certified and strictly monitored by USDA.
Several of our fibers have been awarded with the 100% USDA certified biobased product label, including our seaweed based fiber and our PLA.

All the wood is tracked from the forest to the store, ensuring traceability and that the wood is FSC certified.
All of the wood used to develop our fibers is FCS® certified.
